Young People under the care of Children and Adolescent Mental Health Service (CAMHS)

CAMHS start to look at transitioning young people out of their service when they are aged 17.5. Working with families they identify any mental health needs.  They look at what service would be best suited to meet those needs when you are 18 and older.                 

The GP and/or other organisations may be able to take your care before you turn 18.         

To get in touch with CAMHS, please call the switchboard on 0114 271 7000.
